If you are feeling adventurous and want to try parasailing the boats generally pick up participants at the Bali Hi pier to take you out to the pontoons. Lessons/instructions are provided and safety is always the primary concern.

Sailing, yachting, parasailing and similar activities are weather permitting so you may want to keep your eye on the weather forecast as you plan your holiday. Plan your shopping and indoor site seeing on the worst weather days (if there are any bad ones at all) and keep your outdoor activities including water sports on the best weather days.


Do not be shocked if Thai people are swimming fully clothed, it is not uncommon. Thai people are private and generally do not show intimate areas in public. Though they understand that other cultures are not as modest, do not be surprised if a particularly skimpy bathing suit gets second looks.

It is not appropriate to wear a bathing suit to a temple or any place that business will be transacted.

Enjoy the wonderful beaches, pools and other water sports of Pattaya!
